The flexibility of the BSc Economics course stood out to Meera when applying to university. She was particularly looking for the opportunity to study modules wider than economics, especially to continue learning Spanish. This, alongside a wide array of interesting economics modules, was appealing since it allowed her to align her degree to the areas of economics that most interest her as well as pick up new subjects along the way.
Following her graduation, Meera swiftly moved to a role as an Assistant Economist in the Government Economic Service. At the Office for National Statistics, she works on important research and analysis at a time when statistics are even more crucial to inform the public and policy.
